Senator’s daughter and psychologist Natalie Meeks isn’t at all sure that counseling Riordan is a good idea. One of her previous patients, whom she’d become involved with, had committed suicide at a political fundraiser. His death rattled her self-confidence and she now doubts her ability to treat patients. Throw in an unexpected attraction to Riordan and she just knows this situation is going to be far more challenging than she ever imagined.
Mitchell, the director of D.I.R.E., enlisted Natalie to help ensure that Riordan is mentally and emotionally prepared to finalize his enhancements and become an agent. At first Riordan believes that Natalie has been brought to him as a sort of reward, after all he’s been without a woman for a while. However, she’s far too upper-class for him. When he learns that she’s there to evaluate him it just pisses him off. And even though he doesn’t believe he needs counseling, he agrees to endure the sessions. The sexual tension between Natalie and Riordan is impossible to ignore. Digging into Riordan’s past begins to reveal surprising secrets which result in him questioning not only who he can trust but also his own personal decisions. .
Joni Hahn’s newest addition to her awe-inspiring D.I.R.E. AGENCY series, AGENT M4: RIORDAN held my attention from beginning to end. On the surface Riordan and Natalie don’t seem to have much in common but it soon becomes obvious that they’re both vulnerable and insecure due to events in their pasts. Together, they make a wonderful couple, passionate and supportive, but their relationship is constantly bombarded with uncertainty. Like with the previous books in this series, I was completely captivated by Riordan’s enhancements and couldn’t help but be impressed by his capabilities and bravery. I loved that Natalie shows an admirable inner strength when standing up to Riordan, her own father, and others.
If you haven’t read the other stories in the D.I.R.E. AGENCY series then I highly recommend you do so… it will enhance your enjoyment of Riordan and Natalie’s story. However, I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary to do so in order to appreciate this couple, the D.I.R.E. AGENCY, or Ms. Hahn’s captivating writing style.
The other titles in the series in order are:
AGENT I1: TRISTAN
AGENT E2: AIDAN
AGENT T3: D’ARTAGNAN
